My Fellow Fijians,

Prime Minister's Statement to the Nation on Fijian Troops in the Golan Region

Friday, August 29, 2014
New York

My fellow Fijians,

The Fijian Government is working closely with the United Nations for the release of the 43 Fijian peacekeepers who have been detained by an armed group in Syria. 

The latest information we have is that they are safe and I can say now that the negotiations for their release have already begun. I want to assure the families of the soldiers we are doing everything possible to secure their safe return.

These men are peacekeepers, not combatants in the Syrian conflict, and there is no need for them to be detained.

At the outset, Mr. President, allow me to thank you for convening this open debate on regional partnerships in peacekeeping. Allow me also to thank the Secretary-General, and the representatives of the European Union and the African Union for framing the debate through their presentations. This statement is aligned to that just delivered by the delegation of Egypt on behalf of the Non Aligned Movement.
